Don’t Leave Gaps In Network Security
USA Today points out two recent large-scale attacks: Lockheed Martin’s F-22 fighter plans stolen by the Chinese and the so-called Panama Papers theft of millions of legal documents from the Law Firm of Mossack Fonseca. In the first example, high-technology stolen from a top defense contractor directly threatens national security. In the second, hackers could use the information in those legal documents to score millions through insider trading.
The industry of hackers.
Not surprisingly, threats like these have spawned an entire industry. According to Forbes, there were openings for 1 million cyber-security jobs in 2016, and the industry is expected to grow from $75 billion to $170 billion by 2020. Cesar Cerrudo, a
professional hacker, and CTO of IOActive Labs says that companies and individuals keep making the same mistakes over and over again when it comes to cyber threats. He blames a false sense of security. But no one is ever truly 100% secure. Putting the right tools in place and monitoring your network 24/7/365 is the only sure way to head off dangers that lurk online.
Rehabilitated hackers helping secure businesses around the world.
Many once-criminal hackers are now being paid by governments and corporations to be the bad guy and test their systems. In a real cloak-and-dagger world, cyber-security experts try to penetrate the work place by just looking important and walking into the building. Once in, they grab a computer and try to logon to the company network. How far they get tells the company how lax their security systems really are. According to the DailyMail.com, these high tech hackers can make quite a bundle on testing corporate security. Cost of a full test may even run up to $80,000.
